No matter your thoughts on the TV program, Finding Bigfoot, shown on Animal Planet, it is stirring up the little self-important community of bigfootery. I enjoy writing an online bigfoot magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, and so I peruse several bigfoot sites and watch each week numerous bad, very bad, Youtube videos.
I keep at the subject, bigfoot, since I also write a bigfoot column for my local weekly newspaper and have authored several fiction children’s books on bigfoot. In addition, my husband and sometimes my son, enjoy hiking together in
’s beautiful mossy oxygen-laden forests. Oregon
It has always been my belief that where the animal, bigfoot, is concerned, in the end, when the animal is pronounced real by science, that just a few will enjoy the spotlight of discovery. Currently cut from the herd, we have a group, three men and one woman, on TV, now filming the second season of the hugely popular program, Finding Bigfoot.
The group, no doubt, will make their “mark” on the discovery of bigfoot along with the few well-known men and women armed with doctorates and many books on bigfoot to their credit. And so it seems to me, there is much to be gained by precious few in the discovery of this amazing animal.
Right now there are several Youtube videos of two men associated with the upcoming season of Finding Bigfoot. Both of these men are obviously awed to the extreme by their experience (and, understandably so). A couple videos portray field researchers that believe they’ve been slighted and gone unrecognized in their field work by Finding Bigfoot. And then, we have the mud-slinging maligning few, that get their fun from commenting on the bigfoot sites casting aspersions at rivals. Believe me, the “in-crowd” of bigfootery, is a small world “after all.” But I’ll keep my hand in this, to me, compelling subject of bigfoot, until ... Well, I don’t know for how long.
What keeps me interested in the subject, you ask? One of the main reasons is: I just want to see a good clear photo of the animal. I know the photos exist, so share them! (I’ll not publish them!)
I’m not looking for notoriety, I’ve got that already! I’m not looking for wealth. I have my own stash of “true wealth.” Thank you, to the reader of this column that called, telling me of an article on bigfoot in the Oct. magazine, National Examiner. Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry
